Introduction Breitling Brand
One of the most revered watch brands in the world, Breitling watches are an unrivaled example of Swiss craftsmanship. Breitling has positioned its brand in the luxury watch market as a manufacturer that produces watches for professionals. Some even have special features tailored to specific situations.
Breitling SA is a Swiss luxury watchmaker based in Grenchen, Switzerland. The company was founded in 1884 by Léon Breitling in Saint-Imier, Switzerland. Breitling is known for precision-made chronometers designed for aviators.
Who wears Breitling?
Tom Cruise and Bratt Pitt enjoy wearing their Emergency models. They are joined by Bruce Willis, Leonardo DiCaprio and John Travolta in their appreciation of the model. Other notable celebrities seen wearing a Breitling include Herbie Hancock ,Sir Alan Sugar and Jeremy Clarkson.
How can you tell a real Breitling from a fake?
Examine the logo closely as the “B” should be raised from the dial’s plane and the Breitling name should be etched into the dial. If the “B” is laid flat on the dial, that watch is definitely a fake. The seconds hand of an authentic Breitling watch will end with its iconic “B” and drop into an anchor shape.
Do Breitling watches increase in value?
It’s a fact that aside from whether a watch is highly investible due to its rarity, it will generally hold its value more if the brand that manufacturers it has recognition and status within the watch industry.
What also makes a Breitling watch a valuable possession amongst any collection is that they start at almost half the price of many other major luxury watch brands. But there’s another unique attribute to some Breitling watches. Models like the Breitling Colt Skyracer is powered by a chronometer-certified SuperQuartz movement, which is 10 times more accurate than a standard quartz movement. Considering that not many luxury watch brands create high-end timepieces powered by quartz movements (most are mechanically powered by either a self-winding or a manual-winding movement), Breitling is occupying a rather niche position within the watch market.
